The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 Cup Not serious entertainment
2 Cups A reasonable game, worth a try
3 Cups A good game, worth playing
4 Cups A great game, well worth your time
5 Cups An outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been underrated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

Ben Hastings is a private investigator trying to find the testament of Simon Hunter's uncle in his house. As he proceeds, he uncovers the mystery of this creepy old mansion.

SET THE KEYBOARD LAYOUT TO GERMAN (IBM) for it to work properly.

This game has many flaws and some animations and sounds missing, but should be beatable. It is recommended to read the readme, since the inventory controls are quite unusual.

It features:
- keyboard control
- 4 playable characters (including inventory trading)
- an original, but very short soundtrack

Download the update to version 1.1 here:


and extract it into your newly installed THTAMS folder to fix some problems with the save/load GUI.

I've been playing this for a few days. I'm amazed it is a MAGS entry, as it's quite a long game. The interface doesn't do the game many favours, but the story and puzzles make up for it. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

This is a fine game. The only thing I didn't like was the ending.

I loved this game. It has nice story development, very good graphics that fit the game's atmosphere, (for the most part) original puzzles and interesting characters. However, a couple very annoying bugs deter from the general enjoyment (although there are workarounds, they are not straightforward). I hope nihilyst will release a fixed version soon.
